This morning, the police in Louisville, Kentucky confirmed that at least 5 people have been killed and six wounded so far on the site of the Old National Bank in the downtown area. The suspect, still unconfirmed, has been reported dead as well.

Eyewitnesses in the area saw the unknown suspect with a long gun as he walked inside the bank and started shooting around 8:30 a.m. local Kentucky time. 

As of this year, there have been 131 mass shootings that took place in the United States, in addition to the Louisville shooting. 

The Second Amendment of the US Constitution gives citizens the right to bear arms and some states have already implemented strict gun regulations in California, New Jersey, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusets and New York. 

This leaves the question up on the table if more regulations need to be put in place for the overall safety of America and its residents.
